This tall and steep crag boasts some of skaha's more pumpy sporty routes, most maxing out a full 60 meter rope. The upper half of the crag consists of wonderful roofs while the lower half involves rare skaha slopers. 

Home to some classic 4 star anywhere 11+ /12- routes

Featured Route For (d) Maternal Wall

Banana Bypass 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  North America : Canada : ... : (d) Maternal Wall
Banana Bypass shares the first 3 bolts with Last Banana (look for yellow hangers), then traverses right for 4 bolts over steepening terrain. The final 7 bolts negotiate a corner system and a few roofs. This near perfect route is respected as one of Skaha's best at the grade! Due to the traversing nature of the route, consider either having a follower clean on top rope, or cleaning first half while lowering and cleaning the bottom half on top rope to minimize the swing....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
